Before the storm

There's a storm system heading our way, but today was mainly clear and mild, with snow melting all around. A hole had opened up in the ice covering the stream by the pond, so I dipped my camera down into it and pressed the shutter button without being able to see what I was recording. It feels like you're walking on solid ice, but underneath my feet the camera captured a secret world of ice and water, invisible from above:

The skies have been striking today. First thing, it was all ripples and waves:

By mid-morning, there was an unusual stippled effect to the clouds:

And now it's all going grey as the weather system gets closer. Tomorrow, I doubt we'll see the sun or blue skies at all!
